Elliott Landy and The Band

After learning the very sad news of Levon Helm’s passing yesterday I have been looking at Elliott Landy’s fantastic photographs of The Band. He photographed them extensively during 1968-69, at work while recording Music From Big Pink and “The Brown Album” and at play, hanging out in New York state.

Here are some of my favourites

I was lucky enough to meet Elliott Landy at an exhibition in London in 2003 and he kindly signed my copy of Woodstock Dream
